Dimensions of Bandsaw

Hey All,

I was hoping someone would be able to assist in this. I am looking at getting a 10" Delta Bandsaw and I am not sure if it is going to fit in my Pontiac Vibe or if I will need to borrow a van/truck to bring it home. I do not have the model number nor any other photos of it. I was hoping someone might have the same one or something similar and be able to tell me the height, width and length of the saw and stand so I can figure out it if will fit. The current owner is not going to be able to get in touch with me before I have to leave to pick it up so I would really appreciate the help and not waste the 3 hour drive :)



Thanks!

take it apart!

First remove the table so you won't break the trunnions off which are supporting it! Never lift a bandsaw by the table or transport it with the table on.



Then remove the stand by removing the bolts from underneath first, then lift off the machine itself. Use cardboard and carpet to slide the machine on it's side into the Vibe. Carry and transport the table behind the seat back. The stand is light enough not to worry about, but put a blanket around the machine to protect it from scratches.


Looks like a nice little machine. I have a Craftsman 1/3 HP 10" saw and it's more powerful than I thought.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

I brought an old 3 wheel Delta home in my 05 Chevy Malibu and it was a job! It took me roughly an hour to disassemble it. Take more tools than you think you will need and heed woodnthings advice about the table, especially the trunions (they can be expensive if you can find them). I suggest you break the stand down completely, that's probably the easiest part and it will lay flat and use very little room.

Bring a friend to help load and unload the bandsaw. It is likely to weigh more than 100 pounds, perhaps considerably more.

Well I got it home nice and safe with no damage. I think it was less then 100 lbs so I was able to manage. I am a strong lad :P

Thank you all for your advice. I would not have thought about removing the table off the saw first. You saved my butt on that one!
